We envision a world where all women and families have equitable access to high quality culturally relevant education-based healthcare. In this vision, local pioneers in the healthcare field partner with the families they serve to promote the best health of their communities.
We provide exceptional direct care to women and families to improve health outcomes including traditionally underserved communities. Our programs increase job capacity for providers of color and our services are based on community-identified needs.
Why Here? Why Now?
Rainier Valley Community Clinic is sponsored by South Seattle Women's Health Foundation, which is dedicated to creating spaces for high quality, individualized perinatal care and family medicine and increasing capacity within the community for jobs in the healthcare industry for local women, especially those of color and immigrant women.
We seek out internationally trained midwives and support them through the accreditation and licensure process in Washington State and then provide space for them to start their own practice or to join the RVCC family.
We use global strategies that are proven to reduce costs and improve quality of care.
We teach life skills, health, childbirth and parenting education classes in local high schools which promote healthcare navigation skills and use of community resources to achieve optimal well being.
